The message sounds somewhat harsh: the Office of Management and Budget appears to want to protect you from the problems your subawards are going to cause. The language in the current federal grants management rules — OMB’s uniform guidance — certainly conveys that impression.

OMB has crafted policies that tell entities that make subawards to exercise intense due diligence before and during the performance periods of the lower-tier organizations that they are funding. Further, while the basic steps about exercising that diligence are outlined in the policies, the details about how to do it are not.

The nod to designing the details on an individual basis is probably welcome. However, pass-through entities need to be mindful that if your subrecipients mess up using the money you award them, your organization is in for some headaches and possibly some sanctions, too.

This webinar has been designed to help you prevent that. It will provide you actionable advice about the pre-award and post-award steps you should take to minimize risk yet maintain positive relationships with your subrecipients. You’ll learn about the following:

  • How to fashion application features designed to detect potentially problematic subrecipients
  • Available tools for conducting the required risk assessment of each subrecipient
  • What to do with a poorly managed subrecipient that you have to fund
  • The kinds of training and technical assistance you should provide
  • How to exercise “differential accountability” among subrecipients
  • What federal policies must flow through in subaward terms and conditions
  • How to address the problem of required recognition of subrecipient indirect costs
  • Documenting the post-award oversight steps you have to take
  • Deciding whether a site visit is needed, and if so, how to conduct it
  • Reviewing subrecipient audit findings and delivering decisions that will cause corrections to happen

Join Bob Lloyd, principal of Federal Fund Management Advisor™, for this timely and practical look at how to balance your roles as a helpful provider of federal assistance funds and a watchdog.
